Multidisciplinary care provided at the Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital by Washington University radiation oncologists, medical oncologists and surgeons helps to ensure that a patient’s treatment plan can be determined in one visit with a team of nationally recognized cancer specialists.

The Siteman Cancer Center has operated a facility on the campus of Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital since August 2005. We make it easier for patients living in St. Charles County and beyond to receive world-class cancer care close to home.

Our free-standing, 37,000 square foot building, located just south of the hospital, offers a full range of adult cancer services, including medical therapy, radiation therapy, and support programs. We also provide a wide range of amenities, including portable DVD players, library books, and art supplies, so patients can make the most of their time with us.

The St. Charles facility is staffed by Washington University medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and surgeons who practice at Siteman’s main campus in St. Louis and collaborate regularly with other Siteman and Washington University physicians. These doctors performs multidisciplinary care, coordinating their schedules so patients can see as many as three physicians in one trip and have their entire treatment plan determined in one visit.

Our staff includes registered nurses with specialized training in caring for cancer patients. A research coordinator is also available to talk with patients about possible participation in clinical trials, which provide access to new medications and treatments not available at most cancer centers.

Patients who come to our St. Charles location can also take advantage of a wide range of support services and therapies aimed at helping them feel their best as they undergo treatment for cancer. Some of our programs include Therapeutic Horticulture with the Missouri Botanical Gardens, Touch Therapy with therapy dogs, and gentle yoga. We also have trained social workers on staff who can help patients with specific problems at home or at work that might arise during treatment.
